Des Moines is Okay
posted 5 years ago
All humane societies do great jobs with little financial support, all communities should get out there and help the animals in their shelters get some love.
Pros: Lots to choose from
Cons: Lack of participation

Under new management
posted 6 years ago
This shelter was taken over by the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. It's new name is ARL Animal Care and Control Center. They take in the strays from the City of Des Moines animal control officers and adopt them out. They investigate all animal cruelty throught out the state. They, along with the Blank Park Zoo, have been instrumental in getting a law passed regarding exotic pet ownership in the state. They have also pushed for better laws for prosecuting animal cruelty. They do have limited pets available for adoption and their facilities are older.
Pros: Helps the City of Des Moines with the stray population
Cons: Depressing atmosphere
